Contour Sculpt Body System By Marie France Bodyline

=&0=& Infused with Marie France’s signature potent plant and mineral blend, the compression of MF Contour Sculpt Body Wrap helps rid your body of impurities and fatty acids through the process of lymphatic drainage. It also helps to stimulate existing collagen and elastin fibers, enhance collagen secretions, and improve skin’s elasticity over time. Benefits of Contour Sculpt Body System:
  • Visible reduction and improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
  • Detoxification – designed to help cleanse the body of toxins and interstitial fluids trapped between small spaces of fat tissues.
  • Hydrate and improve texture and appearance of skin.
  • Helps activate the lymphatic system thereby promoting detoxification and a boost to the metabolism.
  • Promotes synthesis of collagen resulting in firmer and tightened skin tone
  • Brightens skin and protects against discoloration and uneven skin tone.
Active Ingredients Our Signature Proprietary Blend Actives includes:   Cupana Seed Extract (Paullina Cupana) Its high caffeine content and stimulating properties make Paullinia cupana particularly effective in weight-loss programs as it helps increase the metabolic rate and improves thermogenesis. Studies have shown that Paullinia cupana positively affects lipid metabolism, enhances weight loss, and increases basal energy expenditure. Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) The soothing, mucilage-rich gel from Aloe barbadensis is obtained from the inner filet of its fresh leaves. Aloe gel contains polysaccharides and glycoproteins – active compounds that together reduce inflammation, stimulate cell proliferation and promote skin repair.   Centella asictica Centella beneficial effects on the venous system help in strengthening the capillaries and veins and in so doing assists with better blood circulation. With its effect on connective tissue great value is achieved with the synthesis of collagen, thickening of the skin (a great anti-aging property – as we age our skins become thinner), increasing the tensile strength of the flesh, wound healing and repair of damaged tissue.   Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) The horsetail constitutes one of the most diuretic species in all the plants. It possesses a great capacity to eliminate water from the body; in such a point to increase urination up to 30% more than what is habitual. Equisetum arvense effectively helps to reduce weight due to the action of several components, which includes equisetonin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ascorbic acid and caffeic acid. As a diuretic it is particularly suited to metabolic or hormonal oedema during the menopause. The diuretic action is thought to be due partly to the flavonoids and saponins.   Arctium lappa root extract (Burdock root) Arctium Lappa Root Extract is an aqueous extract of the fresh roots of the Burdock plant. One of the benefits attributed to burdock root is its ability to cleanse the body. It offers a stimulating effect on the excretory systems, helping them rid the body of toxins.   Palmaria Palmata Extract (Red Algae/ Dulse) Dulse extract has been clinically proven to possess free radical scavenging activity, making dulse useful as an antioxidant. The seaweed has also been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of lipid (fat) cells. It also inhibits melanin synthesis, limits melanosome transportation and UV-induced pigmentation to brighten skin complexion.    Laminaria Digitata (Atlantic Kelp) Laminaria is used mainly in treatments against cellulite and obesity, either alone or combined with other extracts to enhance its activity.   The mineral salts and especially iodine stimulate the general metabolism and cause an increase in the osmotic exchanges thus bringing about elimination of the excess fluids. This phenomenon is made use of in the treatment of cellulite and obesity, hence the use of Laminaria extracts in our wrap preparations.   Rosa Damascena (Damask Rose Oil)  The Bulgarian Rose is a plant that’s packed with therapeutic benefits. It is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and tissue regenerator. High in antioxidants, it offers amazing properties of hydration to the skin and eases conditions brought on by stress, for example, insomnia and tension.   =&10=& Note: Clients will be unwrapped after 25 minutes if entire treatment is administered within our salon.

“Be my friend! SIMPLY, talk to me; Comment me; Follow me; Add me; Join me, in MY FaceBook.”

It’s all about revamping, upgrading and changing of images, driving me into having this idea for My Face Book Fan Club… A reminder of the week, on cooking, preparation of food, daily life, anything, and everything which comes to my mind, prepared or out of the blue. Something simply pops out from my mind, to remind you on the spot (lucky I have my iPhone or iPad with me all the time.. tongue sticking out)! read more

The Correct Way to Cook Instant Noodles

“No choice, but to eat instant noodles? Here’s the correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health (that much..)”

I did not post it up earlier on, because these types of nutritional tips/ information were supposed to be exclusive to my readers who joined me in my FB, as promised. However, it seems to be something useful to know, for the sake of your health, if you are one who hasn’t really came across this message. read more

3 Jan 09 Genie: “Hi, really love your blog.. please keep on updating! can i request for a post on the “necessity” ingredients/things you will always buy and store in your kitchen/fridge?”

The above was a message from my reader, Genie. Her request of having a post on the staple food in my kitchen struck my mind. It’s time to stock-check my fridge and food storage cabinet!

Yes, I do have many things/ ingredients which have become my staple. As a seasoned cook at home, I just can’t “make food” without them (chuckling). read more

Widgets and Blidgets on my Site. This BMR Calculator, to know Your Metabolic Rate Better! And, what’s Metabolic Rate?

“Know what is Metabolism. Eat to control body weight effectively. Calculate yours here!”

I have been so busy these few days, on beautifying my site, and uploading with more features (winking smile)!

It was fun to discover so many interactive toolkits out there, and am still exploring more…

Got a few of these widgets which I was dying to try out … (laughing)

My good colleague who came from China once asked if I could blog in Chinese language. In Chinese words?? Hmmm… it’s possible, but kinda challenging task huh… We’re so used to correspond in English, in order to write or type whole article in Chinese (using Han Yu Pin Yin key board!), it takes double amount of time, double brain juice, double effort… to do so. I would like to please my close colleague, but how to resolve this? Yes, I’ve gotten this site translator here! I discovered it from widgetbox.com. read more

Cooking Tips on Deep-Frying Food

“Deep fry your food correctly”

You can’t go wrong with deep-frying your food. Deep-fried food is always good to taste with an aromatic crisp texture to the palate.

Often, fried food is perceived as unhealthy, fattening, and “heaty” stuff due to excessive oil absorption to the food, excessive repetition in using the same oil to fry, and consume too much piping hot stuff will cause ‘heatiness’ in our body resulted to ulcer, sore throat, and even fever, as Chinese believed. However, fried food is one of the most popular cooking methods, be it for commercial purpose, business or home-cooking. For meaty or vegetarian food, we just cannot totally eliminate fried food in our diet, can we? It’s just too hard to resist the temptation of having a bite or two, sometimes. I like fried food, from breakfast food to supper meal. Tell you what I normally take…. Doughnut or curry puff for breakfast, fried sweet potato or spring roll for tea break, fried chicken wings to go with fried bee hoon or nasi lemak (coconut-milked rice), fried fritter to dip in Bak kut teh soup (Meaty Ribs Herbal Soup), fried vegetable patty, meat, poutry, seafood…. and etc. read more
